Wow has it really been 2 months? I finished this one a while ago but what with moving house and Fallout 3 coming out I only just got around to uploading it.

This is my Itegumo, the sword of Isane Kotetsu from the anime Bleach. It was made entirely by hand except for a cordless drill and has a full tang. This has been by far the hardest guard I have ever made and, after several less than stellar attempts, I settled for the best I had just to move on. As far as I know this is the only released form of Itegumo on DA since most people have only done the katana form so I‘m quite happy I‘m the first. Some of you Isane fans might notice I took a few liberties when I made the main blade double edged but I felt that it looked better that way.

Thanks i really appreciate it =) It is a bit odd that nobody else has done this before considering there are so many bleach replica sword makers on DA
